TEAM NEWS: No Morley, Michael Monaghan on the bench for Warrington Wolves against Hull FC
WARRINGTON Wolves will be without skipper Adrian Morley for this afternoon’s clash with Hull FC.
The prop has been rested as he continues to attempt to recover from niggling injuries but Wolves do welcome back Michael Monaghan after his long-term absence.
Monaghan starts on a bench of returning replacements, with Micky Higham continuing at hooker.
Wolves only have one prop on the bench, in the shape of Paul Wood, but have named Mike Cooper in the second row and Ben Harrison at loose forward, meaning at least one of those can expect to spend some time in the front row at some stage.
Tyrone McCarthy and Ben Currie are back in the first team after time in the under 20s.
Stefan Ratchford replaces Brett Hodgson at full while the Exiles captain continues with his recovery from a hamstring strain.
Wolves: Stefan Ratchford; Joel Monaghan, Chris Bridge, Ryan Atkins, Chris Riley; Lee Briers, Gareth O’Brien; Chris Hill, Micky Higham, Garreth Carvell, Trent Waterhouse, Mike Cooper, Ben Harrison. Subs: Michael Monaghan, Paul Wood, Tyrone McCarthy, Ben Currie.
Hull: Matty Russell; Ben Crooks, Jordan Turner, Kirk Yeaman, Tom Briscoe; Richard Horne, Brett Seymour; Sam Moa, Richard Whiting, Andy Lynch, Willie Manu, Danny Tickle, Joe Westerman. Subs: Jay Pitts, Aaron Heremaia, Liam Kent, Martin Aspinwall.
